Malpais Condos - Costa Rica Real Estate - Solar Condos Solar Vistas consist of eight hilltop lots, each with more than an acre of land, located 8-10 minutes by car from the picture-perfect beaches of Malpais and Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, recently voted by Forbes Magazine as one of the top ten most beautiful beach areas in the world. In addition to our beaches, Malpais and Santa Teresa are known for our vibrant international culture, a mix of Costa Rica and foreigners live in the area, with world class restaurants, yoga, fishing, surfing, and so much more.

Solar Vistas is 5 hectares (12 acres) of cattle field, which is being reforested with rare and endangered hardwood trees to create more habitat for local jungle wildlife, while preserving the best views for the owners of the lots. We believe that when designed correctly, a development can harmonize life between humans and nature, and we are set on proving that with Solar Vistas.

Santa Teresa Condos - Costa Rica - Green Building Houses For inspiration, we have provided designs on this website because we think a development should be thought of as a giant work of livable art – houses with great beauty, energy conservation, and utility to create an ecstatic day to day living experience. These designs will maximize shade to keep the structures cool, and encourage air-flow through each room. Whenever possible, local woods and materials should be used, as well as chemical free paints and stucco so that your health will be protected. An eco house should use all the best knowledge and technology of the “green building” movement, or at least those features that apply in the tropics and can be accomplished in our part of Costa Rica. They should be built to last, with minimal maintenance in this tropical climate, to maximize your free time. And of course, you can build anything you want on your lot, these are mainly just for inspiration.

Costa Rica Eco-House Design - Green Building In addition to the reforestation on the property, we are suggesting the construction of an artificial lake, to be stocked with Tilapia fish. The lake would be surrounded by organic fruit trees – oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruit, bananas, and wonderful tropical fruit trees you will delight in discovering: plantains, tamarindos, breadfruit, guava, and many others. In this climate, you could also be enjoying organic herbs – cilantro, basil, rosemary, lemongrass, and oregano, as well as fresh organic veggies that grow well here such as cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach, squash, kale, and more.
